Jon Olsson's modified 810bhp Rolls-Royce Wraith is up for sale

Pro skier's modded Roller pops up for sale in the Netherlands

Professional skier and YouTube star Jon Olsson doesn’t do things by halves. Especially when it comes to cars. He’s had everything from a Nissan GT-R to a Lamborghini Murcielago SV, a DTM-inspired Audi RS6 to a Le Mans prototype-lookalike – all modified to within an inch of their lives.

And if you happen to share his, erm, ‘eclectic’ tastes, his latest creation has just popped up for sale in the Netherlands. It’s a Rolls-Royce Wraith (called George, naturally) modified by Absolute Motors. That means a dyno-verified 810bhp from the 6.6-litre, twin-turbo V12 (up from 624bhp) and a bespoke Quicksilver exhaust, making this possibly the loudest Rolls-Royce in history.

There’s also a roof rack garnished with six LED spotlights, 24-inch alloy wheels and a trademark Olsson camo-wrap that does everything but make ‘George the Rolls’ blend in to its surroundings.

Olsson’s Wraith, which was first registered in 2015 and has covered 13,000 kilometres, is up for €275,000 – about £242,000. Which is about £2,000 more than a brand-new Wraith, ordered direct from Rolls’ Goodwood factory.

Bit pricey, then. Would you?
